Why Residential Respite Care?
Everything is provided to allow our respite guests an enjoyable and comfortable stay in the safe surrounds of one of our facilities. Our rooms are fully furnished, well-appointed and ready to move in to. They provide a comfortable setting designed for relaxation and enjoyment. Family and friends are always welcome, and with no set visiting hours you are free to come and go as you please. Laundry and all meals are also fully catered for throughout the respite experience.
We offer tailored respite care services
We offer a care and wellbeing program designed to help our respite residents feel instantly at home. This includes orientating them with the facility, taking them around to meet the staff and greet their neighbours, and determine any special needs during their stay. We know how important it is that everyone’s mind is at ease, and you are all comfortable from the very start. We partner with residents and families to ensure the respite service and experience is customised and tailored to meet individual needs.

- The booking fee will be refunded if the care recipient enters hospital, or passes away before entering, or during, respite care.
- If the care recipient cancels a booking for respite care within seven (7) days before the proposed day for entry into respite care, and the reason for the cancellation is other than the care recipient entering hospital or the death of the care recipient before that day, Infinite Care reserves its right to retain the whole or part of the booking fee.
- If the care recipient chooses to leave the respite service before the end of the booked period, the whole or part of the fee for the unused part of the booked period may be taken from the booking fee.
